Scarlatti/Cage Sonatas: Journey Between Two Worlds, a one-hour program offered in the round on the stage of Alexander Hall in Richardson Auditorium
What do Domenico Scarlatti and John Cage have in common? Quite a lot, according to pianist David Greilsammer. In one unbroken stream, he performs sonatas by the two composers back- to-back, revealing many similarities between the 18th century Italian and the notorious avant- gardist. Don’t be surprised if you start mixing them up halfway through.

Known for his fascinating and eclectic programs, conductor and pianist David Greilsammer is recognized as one of today’s most imaginative and audacious artists. Last December, The New York Times selected his album “Mozart In-Between” (Sony Classical) as one of the best recordings of the year. The American newspaper had already awarded his previous album, “Baroque Conversations” among the best albums of 2012, and his New York recital was selected as one of the most interesting musical events of the year.
Born in Jerusalem, David Greilsammer studied at The Juilliard School with Yoheved Kaplinsky, in addition to working with pianist Richard Goode. After making his New York Lincoln Center debut, he went on to becoming “Young Musician of the Year” at the French Music Awards.
Known as a unique interpreter of both baroque and contemporary music, David Greilsammer is also celebrated for his Mozart performances. In 2008, he performed in Paris all of Mozart’s piano Sonatas in a one-day “marathon” and in recent years, he has recorded various albums devoted to the composer. Last season, he played and conducted the complete cycle of Mozart’s twenty-seven piano concertos in Geneva.
Since 2013, David Greilsammer is “Artist in Residence” both at the Saint-Etienne Opera in France and the Meitar Ensemble in Tel Aviv.
This informal concert will feature music introduced by the artist. Audiences are welcome to stay afterwards and talk with Mr. Greilsammer.
